My 2 cents:

Commonly the + prefix is used to indicate an international number.
But it could also be used to indicate a number that has more digits
than the display allows to show.

Maybe the caller was calling from the 803 area while passing more
digits than just your number ?

Easy to test, I guess. Dial your own number, add 1234 and see how
the display handles it :-)

Kind regards,
